Don't know much about history

Or anything else for that matter.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid took his GOP-blasting rhetoric to a new level Monday, comparing Republicans who oppose health care reform to lawmakers who clung to the institution of slavery more than a century ago. 
The Nevada Democrat, in a sweeping set of accusations on the Senate floor, also compared health care foes to those who opposed women's suffrage and the civil rights movement -- even though it was Sen. Strom Thurmond, then a Democrat, who unsuccessfully tried to filibuster the Civil Rights Act of 1957 and it was Republicans who led the charge against slavery. 

Yes Harry, you are wrong again.  The party that was against slavery was the Liberty Party which eventually became the Republican party.  Wrong about history and wrong about health care legislation.  Do us all a favor Harry and try drying your hair in the microwave.

The rest here.
